Simple Dinner Before Thanksgiving Silliness


Talapia seems to be a go-to fish, readily available, versatile and cost effective. But, I also get bored with it.

Tonight, I wanted to make a simple, warm dinner that bordered on healthy and was on the “light” side. I also wanted to experiment with a new vinagarette, so the opportunity was here. Spinach, red peppers and cucumbers rounded out the salad.

I also had a wasabi sauce that worked well with the lemon and the fish.

For the vinagarette:
3 to 1 ratio of olive oil to vinegar (red wine tonight). Season to your own taste
Grated shallot
1/2 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp of honey
Kosher salt
Ground pepper

Panko Crumbs:
Cayenne pepper
Dash or so of paprika

Preheat oven to 375. Dip talapia in milk first, then roll in panko crumbs, place talapia in baking dish and cook for 12-15 minutes.

Simple and good. I’m finding that I enjoy that type of cooking more than trying anything fancy. I’m thankful that I have the opportunity to cook meals. I hope all of you in the US enjoy Thanksgiving tomorrow.
